The Department of Neuroscience offers both an MSc and a PhD program. Our students gain a combination of technical, theoretical, and interpersonal skills which will equip them for related careers in academia, industry and health care.

From the lab bench to the classroom, our MSc program trains students on how to do cutting-edge neuroscience research. Students learn the critical relationship between the brain and behaviour. Find out more about our MSc program.

Alongside top researchers in state-of-the-art facilities, our doctoral students have the opportunity to pursue research projects aimed at finding the answers to the puzzle of mental and neurodegenerative disorders. Find out more about our PhD program.

Application Submission

The deadline for applications for both programs is February 1st. Prior to submitting an application, you must discuss potential supervision with at least one researcher. Applications submitted without prior discussion with a potential supervisor are not likely to be considered.

Applications received after February 1st will be considered, although funding is not guaranteed after this date, and there is a possibility that all supervisors have already accepted the maximum number of students into the labs. Please note this program does not have a winter semester admission.

Please contact the Graduate Administrator for further questions.
